The Feral Dogs of KGA

The Feral Dogs of KGA – these dogs live in a jungle like environment near the Karnataka Golf Association – Golf Course. They are true feral dogs – not easy to find in the urban environment. Extremely shy and nervous, they don’t associate with humans at all, will not approach a person and none of them would wag their tails (other than 2 pups who’ve now been conditioned). Its taken a couple of months of feeding to get them to a point where they will accept food in human presence.Read More

Quintessentially Bangalore. At the end of this and at a 90 degreeRead More

We’ve reported earlier that more dog bites get reported in more detail more frequently than any other city in India. You’d think Bangalore’s dog the most motivated cruelest dogs in India and a non-existent ABC program. Actually the opposite is true. But people, politicians and bureaucratic drunk on Bangalore’s heady growth and need to real estate can be another matter. And there is definitely more bite than bark not talking aboutRead More
Article by Rakesh Shukla What’s stray dog’s got to do with garbage? Everything – its what they survive on. Its food! When I started working ‘with’ dogs a few years back – it was only love for ‘my’ dogs. Then I realized that my dogs, or the dogs around me are not the only dogs that need help – so I started working ‘for’ dogs. Since the issue that melded this was a now discredited attempt by Bangalore civic, administrative and police authorities to hold stray dogs responsible for the death ofRead More
